Hey everybody it’s me, Jake, and i’d like to fill you in on what’s going to be happening here on the singles music channel over the next few months. The exciting news is that I am working on a giant rhythm guitar course. It’s going to go over everything you could possibly want to know about keeping good time and playing good rhythm guitar because I personally think that one of the biggest differences between the amateur musician and the and the professional is mastering rhythm. If you have mastered rhythm then everything is easier. Playing live is easier, writing interesting music is easier, playing in the studio is easier.
A key component to going from shmo to pro is really mastering that rhythm grid but it can be a complex topic and a lot of teachers kind of avoid teaching it because it can be kind of a frustrating topic as well.
Now some of you know that in December, I finished my songwriting and music theory course. I’m selling that for $270 on my website but i gave it away to all of my Patreon subscribers for a name your own price scenario and what i’m really excited to share with you is that this entire rhythm course that i’m working on is going to be available to all of you at a name your own price system.
So whatever you’re comfortable paying for this course is what you’re going to
pay for this course. If all you can handle is zero dollars that’s fine with me. If you can handle a
million well that’s fine with me too.
Now this is a big deal, I’m gonna be spending hundreds of hours on this course and really putting my heart and soul into making the best product I possibly can make for you all so how can i give it away for free?
Well, the answer is i have something called patreon subscribers this is just a bunch of people a bunch of very generous people that have gone to my patreon and clicked a button to donate either one dollar a month or five dollars a month and sometimes fifty dollars or a hundred dollars a month because they believe in what I’m doing here and because of them i don’t have the same pressures that the average youtuber has.
It’s well known in the YouTube community that the youtube algorithm really
punishes creators who aren’t posting constantly who aren’t posting frequently on a schedule so this convinces a lot of youtubers to constantly post content whether they like it or not whether it’s good content or not whether they’re motivated to make that content or not.
I find that to be a pretty frustrating system to work within the revenue that I receive from patreon
means that i get to work on the projects that I actually believe are important and right now what i believe is actually important to work on is a free rhythm guitar course for everybody and there is no way i would possibly be able to spend hundreds of hours on something like this and give it away if it wasn’t for their support
so i really want to stress my appreciation for my patreon subscribers.If you do decide to pick up this course at a discount price you should probably show them some appreciation as well.
So how long is this going to take well I do suspect that i’ll have the course done by mid-august which means i think it’ll be accessible and available on my website by late august but until then it’s probably going to be pretty quiet here on the signals music channel.
I may post a few videos from my actual theory course here on the signals channel but if you’re
looking for more content from me there’s really going to be only two options for the next few months.
Option number one is to sign up to my patreon. You see every single week until this course is done i’m going to be doing live streams for just my patreon supporters. I do these quite a bit where people submit questions ahead of time and then i’ll answer them live and i can prepare different musical examples and we’ll even do live composing as part of that….
